Loved it!

We are urbanites so the initial impression of the deli stuck in a suburban shopping mall was not auspicious. However, when we got inside it was authentic, reminiscent of Montreal delis. The room is large and spacious and at 10 am on a weekday morning, not busy. I ordered the bagel with lox and... read more

A great deli close to home. Fast service and great food. Take out counter has everything you could want while the restaurant has a complete deli menu. The Montreal Smoke meat is a real winner. If you are close by and hungry, it is great.

Came here solo while spending time in north york and was not disappointed. I head everyone rave about Caplansky's downtown but was some what disappointed after taking the trip down there for lunch. A few days later I drove over to this pace and got everything I could have asked for from a traditional Jewish Delicatessen

The food was delish. Nice big sandwich, food came quickly but our server spent her entire time sitting at the table in front of us rather than serve us. She spent the entire time talking with what seemed to be the manager. We never had our drinks refilled. We were never asked or given the chance to ask for hot... More

We recently lunched at Centre Street Deli in Thornhill. The new owners have taken over but not much else has changed. We drank water with our lunch. My wife ate Kishke (stuffed derma - 2 pieces with bread) while I had a Bowl of Chicken Soup with Kreplach (4) $6.95; (I love soup with my pepper and it was very... More

If you're familiar with Thornhill you shouldn't need to read this review, because surely this must be familiar territory. If you're not a local, it's simply the best deli and especially smoked meat west of Schwartz's in Montreal. Period. End of story. What else do you really need to know?

This place is great for breakfast or lunch or anything in between. This is what a Jewish style deli should be like. Great atmosphere great food great staff. Take you Mom or Grandma there and you're back in the will.

Deli platter was just enough for lunch for 3 of us. OK one was senior who didn't eat too much, but enjoyed the experience.

This is our favourite deli - we go there with our friends every chance we get. The old-fashioned deli sandwich with homemade French fries is incredible. Garnished with coleslaw, dill pickle & roasted rec pepper. Our friend from New York absolutely loves this deli - it reminds him of home.

Coming from Hamilton where there is no good quality Jewish style Deli the Centre Street Deli is paradise. Big menu to choose from, plenty of tables inside, solid service, and then of course the food. My wife and I both ordered the Montreal Smoked Old Fashioned deli plater. It was huge, plate of sliced warm smoked meat, fresh rye bread,... More
